A brief, unholy meditation on '70s-'80s era nunsploitation. Leave it to the Italian/Spanish/Mexican cinema to transmute Catholic guilt into sexual fetishism involving naughty nuns, masochism, sadism, whipping and lesbianism. (That's a lot of -isms.) As part of my study on the history of cinema fetishism, here are four typically over-the-top scenes from some nunsploitation films. These are:
(1) Satánico Pandemonium (Mexico, 1975) (2) The Sinful Nuns of Saint Valentine (Italy, 1974) (3) Images from a Convent (Italy, 1979) (4) Convent of Sinners (Italy, 1986)
Watch at your own peril and recite 12 Hail Marys afterwards. This is part of a series on vintage underground cinema. To see more postings, search for "exploitation", "sexploitation" and "stag film". Other film clips and promos include: Olga's House of Shame, The Defilers, The Love Girls, Rent-A-Girl, Olga's Girls, Motel Confidential, Cool It Baby, All Women are Bad, The Ramrodder, Honey, women in prison and '30s French fetish films, Irving Klaw, Bettie Page, et al.

Thanks to k3paint
Thanks for correcting the title of the first clip as Satánico Pandemonium. I hope someone will eventually tell me where the other unidentified clip came from.

Name of movie in video clip asnswer
SATANICO PANDEMUNIUM from 1973, Mexico. Its available on Youtube, I watched it in subtitles ay firstname.lastname@example.org. There is not a lot of nudity, but some very nice full frontal, never graphic. Not very bloody but yet plenty of red stains the screen. This was a very good movie with a good plot, like Flavia the Heritic.

Sponge Bath & Other Oddities
A nun strips to the waist and flagellates herself, a girl is beaten compelling 2 lesbian nuns to hold hands, a nun hauls a novitiate to the catacombs and whips her, then french kisses her, and 2 nuns are flogged for unaccountably giving a sponge bath to a naked young man. It looks like there was originally another segment coming where a nun foams at the mouth, but the film stops at that point.

I'll rate this later. I'm going to slide it in the middle of our movie For this evening. I'll let you know how my wife reacts. She's a practicing catholic, and I'm just a filthy jew. Let's see hide all throwable objects, unload all a guns, Maybe a little valium in her after dinner wine. I MAY survive! /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
I Slipped the Nun Clip in the middle Easy Rider, just before the graveyard scene. It got strangely quiet, And when I turned to see her reaction, All. she said was,"your going to hell over this one!" Well she's probably right! But I'm jewish, so at least I'll get the "express elevator"DOWN?
The bravery is the producer, The eye appeal of the actresses.
